INDUSTRY-FOCUSED CHAT SESSIONS

During large conferences, we all know it’s a challenge to find meaningful, one-on-one or small group networking opportunities with your peers and colleagues. We’re here to help! We are putting together a unique opportunity to share your knowledge and learn from the people around you, in small groups! You’ll be able to start your own topic or join one of interest. Topics will be limited to 5 people and under.

ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING PANEL SESSION: Metallic Materials Qualification and Component Certification
Tuesday, May 8
10:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

Metallic Additive Manufacturing has the opportunity to provide the aerospace industry many benefits including component light weighting, increased system performance, reduction in component lead time and increased aircraft readiness.

Unlike forging and casting, which have had decades to create and fine-tune best manufacturing and testing practices to ensure materials and components will achieve the intended design performance and life, Additive Manufacturing is relatively new and the manufacturing, qualification and certification processes are still being developed.

This panel discussion of global Additive Manufacturing experts across industry and governing bodies, will review the following:

  • Current efforts to develop these qualification and certification practices
  • Success stories of OEMs who have qualified and flown AM parts
  • In-process inspection and monitoring, non-destructive testing technologies
  • The most pressing challenges and risks that still need to be resolved, and how industry, standards organizations and governing bodies can work together to best define and overcome.

Audience questions will be encouraged.

Moderator: Jeff Grabowski, QuesTek Innovations

  • Dr. Markus Heinimann, Arconic, Vice President of Engineered Products and Process Technology for Arconic Titanium and Engineered Products (ATEP)
  • Matt Crill, The Boeing Company, PD Materials
  • Dr. Rob Scudamore, TWI, Vice Chair of the UK National AM Strategy
  • Ana Brandao, European Space Agency, Materials Engineer
  • Dr. Michael Gorelik, FAA, Chief scientific and technical adviser for fatigue and damage tolerance
  • Amber M. Andreaco, GE Additive, Principal Engineer, Materials Behavior
  • Greg Welsh, NAVAIR, Metallic Additive Manufacturing Lead
  • Christian Rückert, Airbus, Head of Materials & Processes Research & Technology
  • Chad Henry, GKN AdditiveMetallic Additive Manufacturing Technology Engineer

 

ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING: Post Processing World Roundtable

Tuesday, May 8

12:15 p.m. - 1:15 p.m.

The world round table will include post processing experts who can give their perspective on post processing requirements, trends and recommendations for additive manufacturing.  Those panelists will include representatives from thermal processing, testing, surface finishing/machining and a "voice of the customer."

Moderator: John Barnes, The Barnes Group Advisors
